Lots of people have their own, distinctive style and you can spot a piece of art by them straight away. Afraid I'm still looking for mine as if there is such a thing as a butterfly with a very low boredom threshold that's me. I flit from one thing to another, not that there is anything wrong with that, if we don't try we don't learn, but it does mean I have an enormous pile of craft stuff. Nothing wrong with that either - if you have the space to go with it - note to self: get a bigger house.
Yesterday I played with two completely different styles. The first was on a birthday card for my sister (next Monday). I am terrible at making cards to 'order' and will do anything rather than sit down and 'make a card for....', would much rather play, see what happens and then find a person it suits.
Anyway, I made myself sit down, decide on a stamp and colours and then, like Topsy, it grew - into this.
It's in the 'pretty' style using a Time To Stamp image I bought years ago at my first visit to the Happy Stampers show at Port Sunlight. The Paris word, pearls and Eiffel Tour are from a cheap charm necklace from Primark.
Totally different now as I set to work on the panel I coloured using my Portfolios. Had blended the background and stamped, then stopped to decide what was next. Used a Paperartsy Mini and marker pens before deciding I didn't like her spooky green face so added a separately stamped and coloured (again Portfolios) panel to the centre.
Here's the before .....
and the after.........
No playing today - Friday is cleaning day, the washer is on and Sorrel and I are just our for our morning walk. well I walk and she runs round like a whirling dervish, fills my heart with joy to watch her.
Have a good weekend everyone, hope the snow stays away.
